cmantei I'm holding in my hands my new #olliclip! Just in time for macro Monday too!!! So excited. 2y
  •   hlgreene Yay! I can't wait to see your pictures! 2y
  •   angelajspencer It's fantastic you'll love it! X 2y
  •   cmantei @bobbsta. Easier to show you than explain it 2y
  •   cmantei @fotograms is photo jojo the one with the sticky back? That's what I have been using, and it was fine until the sticky stuff lost its stick. Then it became very frustrating 2y
  •   cmantei @bobbsta it's made for iPhone so I think it should work on the iPad touch. Not sure about the iPad... 2y

cmantei April 23: #vegetable Zucchini ready to get chopped up to be hidden in some meatballs. #photoadayapril 2y
  •   chelseyann31 Do you do this a lot?? My kids are going anti veggies and I need some ideas! 2y
  •   cmantei @chelseyann31 this is only the second time I've done it. The other time was meatloaf with celery and carrots hidden in it. If they like ground meat -- burgers, meatballs, meatloaf it's pretty easy to put some veggies in the food processor and add them in. If they're small enough you can't see them or really taste them. You could use ground chicken or turkey and make your own chicken nuggets with veggies in them too. 2y

cmantei @fotograms @squirrelly80 Here's A picture story about Biz and the qtips. You can see him watching as I get one out, then climbing my leg waiting for me to finish using it. Then he grabs my hand until he's done licking all the war wax off. And Storm had to come see what all the fuss was about too. #cats #biz #greatdane #stormy 2y
  •   cmantei *ear 2y
  •   justmmie09 Ewe! Lol! Cats have a strange sense of humor! I had a cat that loved to lick toes! 2y
  •   perfectstorm724 Gross! 2y
  •   cmantei @justmmie09 @perfectstorm724 it's totally nasty. But he gets upset if I don't let him lick it. 2y
  •   cmantei @fotograms surprisingly he never tries to grab them out of the garbage can. Haven't had any swallowing issues yet. Knock on wood. 2y
  •   murphthemastiff Ohmyword that is hysterical!! 2y
  •   bowzerscastle my old roommates cat would go nuts for the same thing! he'd pull your arm down as you're trying to clean your ears 2y
  •   squirrelly80 Funny, but gross. 2y

  •   cmantei @ceci0814 I'm doing it backwards this time. I watched the movie a couple weeks ago. Not how I like to go into a new book, but in this case it might be helpful. There's a lot if Swedish words/names to figure out. I'll let you know what I think when I'm done. Have your read or seen it? 2y
  •   tamaranicole Owwwww read this like 3 years back... Too dark for my tastes! I had no desire to read the other two. 2y
  •   cmantei @bobbsta there were definitely some disturbing moments in the movie. I'm actually glad I did it backwards this time as I have a frame of reference for all the names and places thrown at you right at first. 2y
  •   cmantei @tamaranicole I went in knowing the first 100 pages were super slow. And I'm glad I had that warning or I wouldn't have kept going. I'm about 1/3 done and not sure I'm going to get the other two yet. 2y
  •   cmantei @fotograms so far I'm pretty happy with the actress who played lisbeth in the American movie. 2y
  •   cmantei @ceci0814 I finished it today and it definitely isn't my favorite. There were some very tedious parts -- getting backstory and a lot of details. This may be the one time that I liked the movie better than the book. They were pretty similar up until the last 150 pages or so and then it became totally different. If you want to read it, I'd be more than happy to send it to you (in the US that is :). Email me cindymantei@hotmail.com with your address if you want it. I'll list it on my book swap site so either way I'll be mailing it to someone, so it's no inconvenience at all. No pressure either if you don't want it. Just thought I'd offer 2y
  •   cmantei @ceci0814 no problem. I'd definitely recommend watching the movie over getting the book. Good choice 2y

cmantei Today is #showandtellusthursday again! My two year old nephew has discovered the joys of texting. He especially lives the emoji emoticons. Last night we had a great little conversation that ended in a video of him singing a very cute song. I love that technology lets me have a relationship with him even tho we're 1000 miles apart. Love him so much! 2y

cmantei We need to find Storm some bigger friends. The neighbor and her Morkie stopped by to chat. Brody loved Storm and she was great with him, but she has no idea how huge she is and what her wild feet and tail could do to such a little guy. They did get a good half hour of playing in and now I have a very tired doggy #greatdane #stormy #morkie 2y
  •   justmmie09 Awww! So cute!!! I didn't realize how big they were until I saw some this morning! Had to take a picture!!! 2y
  •   cmantei @justmmie09 even tho I live with her I forget how huge she is until I see her with normal sized dogs. Lol 2y

cmantei April 18: #hair It's only 8am and I've already had two hair "styles" today. Rocked the double ponytail while I worked out, then a little French braid for work. #photoadayapril 2y
  •   chelseyann31 I love the braid!! I wish someone had taught me how to braid but somehow I never learned! 2y
  •   cmantei @chelseyann31 I totally taught myself a few weeks ago! This is the only braid I can do -- and I can't even do it every time I want to! Look on pinterest. There are a kinds of videos. I'll help you this summer too . You know who else is awesome at braiding? Alexis!! We need her to give us lessons at near lake. 2y
  •   chelseyann31 Oh I have watched the pinterest videos and I still can't do it!!! I would some lessons at the reunion!!! 2y

cmantei April 17: #somethingidontlike Snow is at the very top of my list of things I don't like. I find absolutely nothing good about it. Thank goodness I didn't take this today or I'd be really sad. #photoadayapril 2y
  •   emhouck I used to feel that way, but then this past January, I fell in love with skiing. Now I'm "ok" with snow!!! 2y
  •   cmantei @emhouck it probably would help if I had something I loved to do. Haven't found that thing yet... 2y
  •   cmantei @fotograms it's the worst! We were very lucky this year by not getting dumped on over and over. But that didn't mean when it did snow I didn't complain and moan and groan! 2y

cmantei My cousin Devin passed away early yesterday morning from complications with pneumonia. He was 21 years old and had Downs syndrome. I won't be able to make it to Idaho for his funeral, so this is my little tribute to him. As a kid he was generally happy, cheerful, and easy going. He loved to watch his sisters play basketball and volleyball. As he got older he developed some autistic-like tendencies. Crowds, noise, and strange places really bothered him. My aunt and uncle haven't been able to go anywhere together for many years. Devin got so disruptive any time he was away from the house that one of them would always stay home with him. Another thing about Devin was that he never spoke. It's never easy to lose someone, especially one so young. But with his passing there is also a sense of relief -- both for him to escape the confines of his mind and body, as well as his parents, who can now live their lives and be with their remaining daughters and grandkids wherever they want. My mom was at the hospital the night he was having his "last meal" with his sisters by his side. His favorite food were fries from McDonald's. He got not one but two that night. Rest in peace, Devin. I hope you're singing and talking to your heart's content now. Devin Cook 1994-2012 2y

cmantei April 13: #somethingifound The other day I noticed these greenish purple sprouts in the flower bed. I don't remember planting anything like them. I'm excited to find out what they become. #photoadayapril 2y
  •   donnabella2 Resembles the Bamboo sprouting in my yard 2y
  •   cmantei @donnabella2 bamboo would be nice. I think it's too cold here for that tho. 2y
  •   donnabella2 Well I live in Nj it gets really cold here too 2y
  •   cmantei @pic_chic58 if it is a hosta it's a totally different kind than the other three I have sprouting. I'd be ok with that. Love my hostas! 2y
